I was thinking of adding phpBB forums on my hosted sites. But I want to know if these take up a lot of CPU and RAM. What if the forum get 100+ posts a day? What if it get only about 20 new posts a day?

And one last thing you also have to edit is the "/etc/sysconfg/network" file. I changed my hostname yesterday, and it doesn't show unless you do this.

I already know C++ pretty well... So don't be thinkin I'm a n00b at programming. But I want to make a sort of "widget style" text editor. I know I can download one but I feel like making my own... If ya'll dunno what I mean by widget, check this out from the RedHat site :

user posted image

I just want a push in the right direction... What type of libaries or stuff am I gonna be working with? That was my main question. I can probably figure out the rest myself. For sure I can bust my ass making one in assembly (because I know how to make colored pixels...) but I'm not too sure about how to make a full background and stuff... And the windows...

thanks

Heh... trustix is GREAT! A server (no X) with evething I wanted was about 400MB!!! That's unbeleivable... With RedHat 7.3 it was like 1.3GB (no X) I think. But it's so uptight about security, It'll probably take me a while to get used to it all. My "regular" account got reported for doing "su" without being a sudoer...!!! And I also feel "smarter" changing configuration files myself rather than using some fancy X tool...

Yo,

I fugured that I wouldn't have enough room for Redhat 7.3 on my old computer AND for a few sites... (4GB HDD) So I want it mostly for a web server and I feel pretty comfortable without X now. I know of one though, Debian. But is there anything else? Because last time I had HUGE problems configuring debian! Is freeBSD any good? Or is linux just better! laugh.gif

One last thing. You know "Remote Desktop Connection" (something like that...) Can I log into (graphically) my old computer from my new RedHat 9 with X even though the old computer doesn't have it? And does it matter if the other computer isn't RedHat also?

Ah.... that happened to me tons of times.... Do you have a D-Link router? Because it did it sometimes. Just unplug it and replug it like 10 seconds after and it should work! I don't know WHY this happened and why this works though...

Just incase that doesn't do it, try pinging the gateway from the Windows machine, or open the router configuration site (Usually by typing it's ip address in a browser) And by there you can change the gateway address!

It's because they are all useful!!! the .iso.md5 files, enable you to check the md5 sum of the iso once it is downloaded to make sure it is not corrupted. Because if it is corrupted the install will fail because there was an error in the files. To do this you need a md5 program. You don't HAVE to check the md5, but I HIGHLY reccommend it because it has already happened to me that one of the disks was corrupted andI had to restart the whole installation. ( Which is pretty long if your computer is out of date and if you picked to do a custom installation. )

.torrent isn't necessary. It is a p2p thing. They are for the BitTorrent program which is extremely good, I got half of my pograms there! If you are interested in bittorrent though I suggest you download it then go here: http://www.suprnova.org to find a ton of bittorrent files!

I reccommend though, that you download the ISOs directly from ftp, because the ftp server is on 24/7, and bittorrent is like a tiny, safe Kazaa. So if the owner of the file leaves, your download is stopped untill he comes back on.

I have a D-Link router and a WinXP (my subnet is 192.168.0). And in the settings of the router I can point to a few sites like dynDNS.org.... But I probably need programs. I checked them out pretty quickly... but I think I have another idea! Because my redirection url is from http://www.freedomain.co.nr. They say that all I have to is write this in the address bar: "http://www.freedomain.co.nr/dyna.php?domain=YOU&tld=co.nr&pass=password&dir=sub_dir" and it works all good. I typed it from lynx a few times and my site worked again! So is there a script or program or whatever I can program that can automatically do this, say.. ever hour?

Hey,

I have a web site with one of those free redirection urls and cloaking. That address points to my Red Hat 7.3 server. But every few hours the site is "down" because the ip that the url points to is no longer valid. There is this special url that I can visit from that old computer that they put up especially for people with dynamic ip addresses. But my problem it that I don't even shutoff my computer and the IP seems to change for nothing! I don't know if it's a "me" problem or a sympatico problem. Will making a static ip work? I yes, how do I do it?

Your message means that your video card or monitor cannot supprort 24bpp (aka 32bpp) as a color depth.

Well, first of all, RedHat 9 is "too much" for your specs. Especilly looking at the facts that your video card is unknown it is probably around 1-2MB anyways. X will be way too slow! Especially with 32MB RAM. I have a Cyrix6x86 200+ (about the same as a crappy P-II) with 96MB of RAM and X is STILL slow in RedHat 7.3. I recommend you try something like RedHat 7.3. But I wouldn't really recommend anything before that because of various security issues... Right hughesjr? LOL... You made me paranoid now.

And for the file you have to change, it is "/etc/X11/XF86Config-4".

I'm not too much of a pro when it comes to configuring that file, but are you SURE you absolutely have no idea of what your video card and monitor are? Because it is really better to use the driver for your card instaed of a generic driver. Open up you box, take out the video card and take down notes of whatever you see (names, numbers...) on chips. Maybe we can help you identify it!!!

I'm trying to set up a local HP Deskjet 600C printer on RedHat 7.3 .
I run "printconf-tui" as root, select all the proper settings. But when I try to print a test page it sais that an error occured. Well I know that EVERYTHING is right, but I'm not too sure about the drivers... There are many of them, tried them all and they don't work. What am I doing wrong?

Um, I don't think you can access linux partitions for Windows. But if anybody knows about a special program that can do this, please post it! Because in linux you can recompile the kernel to have ntfs support, but in Windows you cannot do that.

???? I don't get what you are asking. Can you rephrase that please?

But if you are trying to log in as root all you do is type "su" then the password. Not "#su"... I have never seen that before!

sad.gif Why uninstall linux just because you don't understand it? There are so many places where you can get help. And there is a Getting Started guide on the Red Hat site!

But... if you insist... where is it? How did you install it and where?

Ummmm... I suggest you read the "Getting started guide" on the Red Hat site. It will answer most of your questions. But if you get error messages even after you configured it maybe we can help.

And if you want it to boot into graphical mode all the time instead of the prompt edit the "/etc/inittab" file. Change this line: (ONLY THIS LINE!!!)

id:3:initdefault

to

id:5:initdefault

But make sure that X is properly set up and works before deciding to do this.

OOOHHH!!! That might be it... The port 80 thing.

I'm using Red Hat 7.3 on it. I have DSL (sympatico high speed). Well on that computer I have port 80 open (...duh) and I'm thinking it might be the integrated firewall on my router.

QUOTE
I suppose you got your internet address from myip.com or the like.


No, not yet...? I don't have a domain. I only typed up the ip.

But I'll configure my router to let traffic on that port go through and I'll tell you the outcome. And yes the DSL is shared.

On my network, my Apache server's ip adress is 192.168.0.146. OK
I can access my site from my other computer on the network.

You know those sites that you can go on that say all that stuff about your ip and isp? I took down that ip address from the computer with the apache server. But when I go at school (or on my network) and type xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (security....), nothing shows up. Not even the Apache test page. No, I'm not dumb.... the service IS running. Why can't I access it? Or how can I access it?

Thanks

EDIT: I can ping it. With both IP's

When I start X, no matter what desktop and when I start certain applications from twm, this weird message pops up:

"/tmp/mcop-chris is not owned by user"

Obviously, my name is chris, and it is in the /tmp directory. Can I erase that file? (And any other file in that directory?)
I might know how it happened though... Sometimes I do "su" and forget to type "exit" before starting X. Can this be it?

You need to add NTFS support to your kernel. Go here: http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/index.html. Personally I haven't installed it so I can't help you. But I know that for now it ONLY reads the partitions and would corrupt the partition table of you try to write to them. But since you want to copy FROM a windows partition... This should be ok right? tongue.gif

I have the same problem in Red Hat 7.3. Using a YAMAHA OPL-SaX3 card.

And in my Red Hat 9, whenever I try to listen to midi it sais something like "/dev/sequencer can't be opened (or is busy with another application)"

A couple of reasons...

If your /boot partition is after the 1024th cylinder of the hardrive, it may not work. (However this is not the case with GRUB.) So, if this is the case, use your rescue floppy (if you have one... which you should!!!) and I recommend you install GRUB.

If LILO was installed on the MBR and something happened to it. For example: Reintalling Windows XP formats the MBR to make load it right away.

Tell a bit more info.... What "format" is Windows partition? (ex FAT32, NTFS...) And what version of what distro?

Because you might already be able to do it without extra packages!
